    Michelle, they say it can take up to 12 weeks to fully work. Are you on it for anxiety. I myself are on week 7, I feel way better than i did 3 months ago, but anxiety is still creeping up in there....didnt they give you anything else to take to calm the anxiety?

    Hey lovely. You really shouldn't just come of the medication I did it and was totally I'll! Dizzy passing out shaking sick was horrible ! I hope you understand that there are many types of anti ds and anxiety tablets.. I have been on citalopram for 2 years I was settled and was enjoying life. I was knocked down to 10 mg and it was a bad choice the 10mgs made me I'll. I tried fluxotine for 4 weeks and it really didn't agree with me I had a bad tummy I was sick I was hilusinating sweating was awful! I have now been back and been in citalopram 20mgs again and feel more like me not a horrible person I was on that medication. It's finding one that's right for you and I have come to terms with taking this medication now if 1 tablet a day keeps me happy and right and helps me live a normal life then j will. I hope you get well soon but honestly you won't get better by being on nothing you will be ill .. Always here should you need a talk xxx

      I was under the understanding that you was just coming off medication which alarmed me as I know how bad I was when I do.. I really hope you feel better soon always here if you need a chat cbt Theropy is also good hard at first but soon passes and I think that really helped me too... Take care xx

      I COULD NOT handle Prozac! I was a total an complete mess. I was 20mg for almost 6 wks an couldn't take it anymore. Every symptom I had it. I lost 10lbs in 5 wks. Upper back hurt so bad I cried. Liver area hurt to. Severe anxiety an severe depression worse than before starting. It was litteraly making me crazy. I'm not on anything rt now. Im fixing to have hormones checked again. I think I'm getting to much progesterone. Severe anger out bursts. Im a monster now or feel like one. I feel guilty from screaming at everyone. My husband even said I had better figure this out or learn to control it. Been going on since I stopped Prozac. Or Fluoxetin. It works for some but not me!

    I was on fluoxetine 10 mg for 19 days. I was on Buspar 15mg for 11 days prior to that. This was my first time on antidepressants for Anxiety. I have never taken any kind of these meds and it was complete hell. I lost 10lbs in 3 weeks. Severe side effects of increased anxiety, chest pains, nausea, diarrhea, not sleeping. I also went to er thinking something was horribly wrong with me. Ive had plenty of bloodwork and EKG and all came back normal. I am now 8 days off all medications and I feel much better! I do take ativan .5mg as needed for when I start to feel anxiety might be coming on. Ive said in many of these posts that antidepressants have helped many people but they do produce some horrible horrible side effects. I could not take it anymore after 30 days. And maybe neither of the meds were right for me, but right now I will not be trying any other antidepressants. I will continue ativan as needed and i'm also in therapy. Good Luck to you!! I know the hell you are going thru!
